Pickett initially was evaluated in the sideline medical tent before walking to the training room for further evaluation.
He went 11-of-18 for 67 yards and threw his first career touchdown.
Mitch Trubisky has replaced him and is 11-of-18 for 67 yards and a touchdown.
Bucs tight end Cameron Brate also won’t return today after being placed on a backboard and leaving on a stretcher. Brate took a shot to the head and neck on 6-yard catch.
The Steelers lead the Bucs 20-12 in the fourth quarter.
